It may be getting colder outside but our Project Christmas Baskets thermometer is rising. Last night we received a donation from our local Kiwanis Club. Thanks to Mike Parker and all the members for their donation, which put our total over $2500 toward our $3500 goal for Project Christmas Basket! It’s going to happen! We’re going to fill 100 baskets and deliver them to two senior citizen complexes on December 8.
We have sent out more than 250 letters and have received several donations and commitments from several new volunteers to help us fill the baskets on December 1 and deliver on the big day. If you would like to help on either or both days please email us through our contact us page or message us through the LBFOL Facebook page. We also have an event page set up on Facebook that you can join also. If you would like to donate items or money please check out our How can I help page or visit our donate page that will let you donate online using PayPal.
We want to thank Beverly White owner of Paul’s Christian Book Store at 114 E. Front in Sikeston for setting up a collection basket for those who want to drop off donated items; Amy Sutton, owner of The Petal Shoppe at 113 E. Main in East Prairie for donating the ribbons for the baskets and also setting up a collection box for items; and Heartland Trailers at 412 State Hwy H in Sikeston for donating the trailer/trailers that we’ll use to delivering the baskets on December 8. If you are from the Sikeston area, please visit these businesses and show them how much you appreciate their donations to LBFOL to help some senior citizens have a little better Christmas this year. They all have great products that would make someone you know have a merry Christmas also!
Thanks again to all who are donating and helping us reach our goal!
God bless you all!
